Former Gonzaga center Zach Collins has signed with agent Mark Bartelstein, who has represented numerous ex-Zags.
Collins declared for the NBA Draft last week, becoming the program’s first one-and-done player.
Bartelstein is the CEO of Priority Sports, which tweeted “welcome to the family” to Collins on Thursday. Bartelstein’s list of clients includes former Zags Dan Dickau, Ronny Turiaf, Adam Morrison, Austin Daye, Jeremy Pargo, Elias Harris, Kevin Pangos and Kyle Wiltjer.
Bartelstein also represents Kim Tillie, older brother of current Zags forward Killian Tillie. Kim plays professionally in Spain.
Numerous NBA mock drafts list Collins as a lottery pick (top 14), often in the 10-13 range.
Collins averaged 10 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in his freshman season for Gonzaga, which won a program-record 37 games before falling to North Carolina in the national championship game.
